There is one secret that successful pickup artists always use. No matter what their style, no matter what kind of woman they’re aiming for, there’s always something that sets them apart. This is the single greatest secret in pickup history: dating gimmicks.
What’s a Dating Gimmick?
A dating gimmick is the thing that’s going to get her attention. No matter who she is, no matter what she’s into, your dating gimmick is the thing that sets you apart from the other men after her attention. It’s a way to start a conversation and keep her interested, and it really could be anything. You need to find something that you like to do and that you’re good at, and hone your skill until you are confident enough to use is to show off to women.
Why You Need One
Women don’t date jerks. They date jerks who play guitar. They date jerks who run marathons. So on and so forth. If you have a gimmick, that one interesting thing about you that women can focus on and hold onto, you can actually get away with being a worse catch in other ways. She’s not going to notice a bald spot if you’re wowing her with tales of your exploits in a cover band. Having a great gimmick will be the main headline when you’re selling the idea of yourself to a woman you want to pick up.
Finding the Gimmick That’s Right for You
Most of these gimmicks could be summarized as a hobby taken to the extreme. So how can you know which one is the right one for you? Obviously, you’re going to know within the first few tries whether or not you like something at all. If you hate windsurfing the first time you go out, why bother? But a gimmick is more than just a hobby. There are some things that women love, and that some types of women love more than others.
Music is always a big one. Play guitar, take singing lessons and rock karaoke. As long as you don’t pick something lame like the harmonica, you’re going to be scoring chicks left and right. Remember that one guy from college who just hung out at parties, jamming on his acoustic guitar? He might have been the most annoying guy around, but he had a point. Take a page from his book now.
Working out is a tricky one. No one really likes to hear about a well-rounded workout regimen. If you’re going to make physical fitness your goal, you’d better be prepared to specialize. Lifting weights is fine, but long distance running is sexier. More women like lean men than bodybuilders, and you can dazzle her by saying you run ten miles a day. The downside, of course, is obvious: you have to run ten miles a day.
Whatever you choose to make your gimmick, pick now and stick with it. You have to put in a bit of effort before it starts paying off. No man ever won a night with a woman by tooting out “Hot Cross Buns” on a recorder. Once you’ve made the effort, though, you’ll start seeing dividends in the form of eager one night stands.
